About The Course

The four Math Mayhem late winter sessions at Upward Hartford will feature "Life-Lessons Using Math".  We begin with the game of furnishing one's first apartment.  It involves basic addition and subtraction using real world costs of cookware, furniture, bedding, and electronics.

We then integrate multiplication, using rent and utility bills, and division using salaries and monthy paychecks.  In the later sessions we address loans and start-up costs for building a business, and we put into play college savings and compound interest.

This has worked well with ages 10 - 14, but we invite students as young as 8 to join us.
